I was surfing the web the other day and I fell in love with the Amy Butler Birdie Sling - so I ordered the pattern and TADA here is my new bag. I am very happy with how it turned out - I think if I were to do it again I would make the strap a little shorter. Also I wasn't very happy with how my top stitched turned out at the top of the bag it was a bit sloppy.

I am so excited! I just finished my first bag and I think it turned out pretty well. I had a really hard time with the hidden inner pockets (I did two instead of one) and they aren't perfect but they are alright (I think it is because I downloaded a free pattern and the instructions weren't great). I also learned that I have a horrible whip stitch - the bottom of the inside of the bag looks like a 5 year old sewed it. But I love the fabric and I love how big the bag is so overall I think it was a success.

I had a weekend full of crafting. Yesterday I ended up going to Denver Fabrics and buying a bunch of fabric to make bags out of. I intend to make a bag that I found a pattern for online and I also ordered a pattern for the Amy Butler Birdie Sling which I also plan on making.
Last night and this evening I spent some time working with PMC again. Below are a few of the things I made.
For my mom's birthday she requested that I make her a custom charm bracelet. I was really happy with how it turned out. She wanted designs stamped on the back of the charms and custom phrases / names stamped on the front.
